Hmmm, tortillas, my favorite food! I love them so much that I could eat them for every meal, even empty as chips. Maybe you have already understood how much I love tortillas, since my blog was first imagined as a collection of chocolate desserts, tortillas have already made a few successful guest appearances. You surely remember my Chicken Avocado Burritos, and how deep my obsession with tortillas goes, you can also see with the Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas. Yes, tortillas are on my menu really often and not just as a main dish but as a dessert. What will I do when I love them.

By your comments, I noticed that many of you share my love for burritos, chimchangs, tacos and other dishes made with tortillas. And why wouldn’t you, you can always have them on hand if you need a quick and a tasty meal. You can roll meat, vegetables or cheese into them, and you can’t go wrong with any combination. The possibilities are endless, whatever comes to your mind, you can fry them in oil, bake them in the oven…whatever.

As my last recipe for burritos, I hope that these Chicken Taquitos with avocado cream will be an inspiration for us all. You don’t have to follow the recipe blindly, you can add your own touch. Last time, I was very excited by the number of your ideas and suggestions and the different additions you have tried with my Chicken avocado burritos.

This time, I decided for cooked chicken breasts with green bell pepper, corn, cheese, salsa of course, and a few spices, and as a sides, I served lettuce, cherry  tommatoes and crème from mashed avocado mixed with sour cream and freshly squeezed lime juice. I really liked this combination and wouldn’t change a thing. But, if you have any ideas, you are free to post them. I look forward to hearing your favorite combination.
